Canto a Cinque Voci

 

René Küng

 

Many of Küng's works turn nature into an instrument, giving it a ‘mouth to sing'. This is one of a series of Cantos; its title means "Song for Five Voices". His works can seem to want to be heard, as well as seen.

 

For the Young (and Young at Heart)

What are your favorite tree sounds? Have you heard leaves rustle, or a branch creak? Listen closely as you walk around this work...can you hear it "sing?" Where do the branches ask you to look?
